Protect your business with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS)

[fa icon="calendar"] November 8, 2017 / by Highstreet

If there is one common theme among every growing business in the world, it is their growing investment in infrastructure as a service, or IaaS. Cloud processing services are the backbone of today’s information technology, and the benefits they provide for companies just like yours are truly infinite.

In an IaaS computing model, a trusted third-party provider hosts hardware, software, storage, and other important infrastructure components on behalf of its users. IaaS providers also handle system maintenance and backup, which protect your business in the event of a potential disaster.

There will be a time in the near future when cloud computing is not only beneficial to successful businesses, but a necessary part of their daily operations. You need a comprehensive support plan for your network operating center, and IaaS can provide you with the systems and applications you need to continue growing. Here are just three of the many reasons that you need to find quality IaaS services for your business:

Cloud computing is on the rise. If you’ve been reluctant to invest in cloud computing to this point, there has never been a better time to change your mind and join the cloud revolution. Enterprise public cloud spending is expected to reach $127 billion by 2018, and recent projections indicate that it could be even more than that. Specifically, your business needs to consider the benefits of IaaS. By 2016, approximately 75% of enterprises will be using infrastructure as a service, and you cannot afford to fall behind.

Protect against disaster. Cloud computing is such a crucial aspect of successful businesses today because you just never know when things can go awry. Whether it be a power outage or just a random hardware failure, you’re liable to lose valuable and indispensable information at the drop of a hat if you have not obtained cloud computing services. Every single week, about 140,000 hard drives crash in the U.S. Avoid this potential disaster with cloud computing.

Prevent data breaches. If there is one thing that major enterprises fear more than data loss, it is data breaching. Information theft is on the rise as hackers improve the tools they use to prey on your valuable data. Additionally, current employees accounted for 35% of all data breaches in 2014. You need information safeguards on both the inside and outside of your company, and that’s exactly what IaaS services can provide.

Cloud computing will soon be the norm for every enterprise in the world, and you have the opportunity to join this movement in its early stages. Invest in quality IaaS services from a trusted IT solutions firm and take your company to the next level.
